“There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now.
Time will reveal it. Be patient.” – Swami Sivananda
I keened for my desire to be met.
[Exactly as described. No other way.]
And the Universe, instead of giving it to me (or whatever), gave me the answer to desire’s deepest, darkest questions.
I’ve been in the thousand-petalled lotus of desire for years.
Afraid it was a maze.
With a Minotaur at the center.
(And no goddamned way out.)
In the lotus of desire, there is only a dark, tight center.
And inside is a candle.
With one question: what are you willing to burn for?
I know the answer.
Desire can be used skillfully.
Now I am free.
